Hi pingskills again.I know that topspin can be returned by a block or another topspin. Yesterday I was playing table tennis with my friend and he plays with a lot of sidespin.The question is: How to block a sidespin,because when I am blocking the ball,goes out of the table?
And the second question is: You need to be a premium member to respond with a video?
To return a sidespin topspin with a block you need to allow for the sidespin with the angle of your bat. If the sidespin wants to take the ball to the right then you face your racket to the left and vice versa. Everything else about the block can remain the same. Remember though because the ball doesn't have as much topspin you don't need to have your bat so closed over. It is experimentation of the angles to get it right. It can be a tricky shot to return.
